Impact 🌱 is the award-winning digital destination for young people shaping the future. From explainers that break down complicated political events to content about the intersection of pop culture and social justice, ours is a platform producing social content and initiatives towards a young, social-good driven audience. In 2022, we launched a climate-centric sister platform, Environment 🌍. 

As Designer at Impact since 2022, I produce and execute visuals and creative strategies that resonate with an audience of more than 3.2 million combined people, as well as collaborate with cross-functional teams to create visually compelling designs that drive engagement and increase brand awareness. I also take a role in designing visuals for mutual aid initiatives supporting causes such as Everytown for Gun Violence, Ukrainian Refugee Relief, Türkiye and Syria Earthquake Relief, Maui Wildfire Relief, Pakistan Flood Relief, Planned Parenthood, and various other impactful campaigns.

In 2023, I collaborated with our Art Director, Cristeen Park, to design, develop, launch, and maintain the company site, built on Readymag. In the summer before, I quarterbacked the platform’s pivot to original video content, catalyzing its evolution from ground zero to a fully realized and engaging multimedia experience.
